A Peek Inside President Kenyatta's Inner Circle

During his first term, Kenya's President Uhuru Kenya appeared to have handed the leadership reins to his deputy, William Ruto. He now appears to lean more towards his foe-turned-political friend, Raila Odinga. By managing to wrestle the mantle from Ruto, Kenyatta has planted other individuals he trusts at prime positions and his inner circle has thinned to just a handful of people, according to The Nation.
